RACINE, Wis., May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- There has been a lot of buzz in the industry lately about the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee. The return of the Cherokee nameplate means a lot to Jeep and the company is preparing for a full-scale release. But while there is no denying the excitement, many consumers already want to compare 2014 Jeep Cherokee vs Jeep Grand Cherokee to see how the newest Jeep stacks up.
The first thing to note about the new Cherokee is that it will be offered with a V6 or a fuel-efficient four-cylinder. The 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine will be capable of getting up to 31 MPG highway fuel economy. This will allow it to go up to 490 miles in one fill-up. But, it will also be offered with a V6 engine that gets 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. In comparison, the Grand Cherokee gets 290 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque out of its engine. The Grand Cherokee doesn't have the ability to get its fuel mileage into the 30s range unless equipped with the EcoDiesel V6 engine.
Another key point of note on the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee is the fact that the vehicle will be the first offered with the new nine-speed transmission. This adds to the outstanding fuel economy on the vehicle as well. The Grand Cherokee will continue to feature the eight-speed transmission – also a very efficient transmission.
The style and luxurious interior will be key components of the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee. It will also offer the Jeep capability that consumers have come to appreciate.
